The real difference between Grayne Engineered Shingles and cedar is the amount of maintenance required through the years. Grayne products replicate the beauty of real cedar but are easy to clean and maintain.

The appeal of natural cedar comes from its color variance. Thin dark lines are formed during a tree’s winter growth. Wide, light lines are formed during summer growth.
Grayne’s colors provide the same light and dark variances to closely replicate real cedar like no other siding can.
Grayne’s color palette provides color variance, just like natural cedar.
Plain Sawn Cut – All of the saw cuts are parellel in one direction, resulting in a variety of wood grain patterns.
Plain sawn wood offers beautiful woodgrain textures that add charm and detail to wood shingles. It’s also prone to cup, warp and split when one side of the shingle gets wetter or dries faster than the other side.
Grayne Engineered Composite Shingles are dimensionally stable. That means all your pieces will be straight, you’ll have less waste and your home exteriors will require much less maintenance through the years.

Dry Natural Cedar Shingle
In natural cedar, the plain sawn cut is not dimensionally stable due to wood performance.
Grayne took a multi-angle approach when designing the aesthetic details of its shingles. Even the sides and bottoms of each piece mimic the natural woodgrain texture found in real cedar.
Authentic keyways also replicate the beautiful, deep shadow lines of traditional cedar’s offset installation method.
